Event Activities

From the opening time, the event will be open for kids to explore around the displays of the heavy duty vehicles. They are allowed to touch and learn about the heavy equipment from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The previous Heavy Equipment Petting Zoo held last year featured a wheel loader, triaxle dump truck, backhoe, rubber track excavator and skid steer among others. Kids were allowed a number of activities such as creating white wall tires made of chocolate donuts. Kids also raced models of trucks, cars, and diggers down a 20-foot long ramp!


This year’s Annual Heavy Equipment Petting Zoo will include a lot more activities for the kids. The Heavy Equipment Zoo has also grown in popularity so attendees can expect a good turnout for a rich display of heavy machinery at the event. Because there will be a good variety of trucks on display, the experience at the equipment petting zoo will be all fun exploration and learning activities. This is just one of the many great events that the America on Wheels Museum puts on, while you are there you should grab an event guide or tour the inside exhibits!
